Bay Tree Close planning application resurrected after 26 years

Proposed housing development in Bay Tree Close, Patchway.

A planning application has been submitted to South Gloucestershire Council (SGC) to build four three-bed houses in Bay Tree Close, Patchway.

The applicant, John Baylis Construction Ltd, wishes to build the new homes on a plot of vacant land that previously had permission for five two-bed houses, granted as long ago as November 1986 but now lapsed.

According to the design and access statement submitted with the application, a pre-application enquiry to SGC resulted in the District Council expressing a preference for houses rather than apartments to be built on the site. Additionally, the Council’s housing officer advised that two off-street parking spaces would be expected for each of the three-bed properties.

The application describes the site as “a redundant piece of land formerly occupied by lock-up garages, and now overgrown”, adding:

“It is fenced off from the public realm and offers little or no amenity value to local residents.”

The four new properties would be arranged in a single terrace and they would also have rear access via a lane that leads off Cranbourne Road.

Vacant land at Bay Tree Close, Patchway, Bristol.

The consultation period on the application runs until Tuesday 21st August.
